Patriot Pictures and XYZ Films have brought on Wayward Entertainment to release Nick Cassavetes’s newest thriller, God Is A Bullet. The trio have released a first look still which you can view in the lead just beneath, along with the official poster at the bottom of the page.
Okay, it’s not necessarily an across-the-board universal truth or anything but I think we can all agree that there’s a degree of sameness to a lot of Netflix originals. That was my main concern going into “Day Shift”. Being J.J. Perry’s debut feature, I’m guessing a lot of people reading this had similar concerns about what could go wrong with this film. In my case, I’m confident in saying that my concerns were coming from a completely different place. I was concerned less as a fan of action films and moreso as a diehard fan of the vampire movie subgenre. Luckily for me (and for everyone who is coming to “Day Shift”), those concerns turned out to be much completely unfounded and I ended up shockingly impressed.
Not too long ago legendary action coordinator J.J. Perry was on Scott Adkins’s YouTube show “The Art of Action” and dropped some hints that he and Scott, who first worked together on the low-budget action classic UNDISPUTED 2, would be teaming up again soon.
The Batman screenwriter Mattson Tomlin’s latest work-up in the sci-fi/superhero purview will soon get an audience this month with the upcoming movie, Project Power. That it comes from Nerve directing duo Henry Joost and Ariel Schulmann – currently behind efforts to adapt MegaMan for the big screen, speaks aptly to the mind of visually stimulating, elevated allure that’s on target for a film of this kind, which puts actors Jamie Foxx, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Dominique Fishback in great company.
Keeping in line with the sleek and stylish air of action seen in Kingsman, moviegoers are invited to rejoin actor Taron Egerton in his latest iteration of the title folk hero in Robin Hood (sans ‘Origins’). Otto Bathurst directs his Peaky Blinders and Black Mirror follow-up, bringing less of the cerebral and just as much intensity to the spectacle that can now be sampled in the new official trailer with much more Jamie Foxx this time around as Bathurst’s choice for John.
Robin of Loxley (Taron Egerton) a war-hardened Crusader and his Moorish commander (Jamie Foxx) mount an audacious revolt against the corrupt English crown in a thrilling action-adventure packed with gritty battlefield exploits, mind-blowing fight choreography, and a timeless romance.
A talented, young getaway driver (Ansel Elgort) relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game. When he meets the girl of his dreams (Lily James), Baby sees a chance to ditch his criminal life and make a clean getaway. But after being coerced into working for a crime boss (Kevin Spacey), he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom.
Right about now you’ll be spotting clips here and there online for director Baran bo Odar’s new movie, Sleepless. Enter actor Jamie Foxx whose robust career in film and entertainment now lends us a pure, tough role that moviegoers may get a kick out of when the film opens this weekend, marking the second iteration of its 2011 French language predecessor, Blanche Nuit – the first being Kamal Haasan’s Thoongavanam in 2014.
Undercover Las Vegas police officer Vincent Downs (Jamie Foxx) finds himself caught in a high-stakes web of corrupt cops, internal affairs and murderous gangsters. When a failed heist leads to the kidnapping of his teenage son, Downs must race against time during a wild and restless night to save him and bring the criminals to justice.
Advancing its February release to this Friday in the U.S. from Open Road Films, a red-band trailer is now out and about to help put things in further perspective. Foxx is joined by Gabrielle Union, T.I., Michelle Monaghan, Dermot Mulroney, David Barbour and Scoot McNairy for the cast.
Watch the red-band trailer below!
SLEEPLESS NIGHT is the story of Vincent Downs (Jamie Foxx), a seemingly corrupt Las Vegas cop. When gangsters kidnap his son as ransom for a shipment of cocaine he stole, Downs races to save his son’s life without getting caught by Internal Affairs and before the mobsters discover that he’s actually lost the goods. Monaghan plays officer Jennifer Bryant, an Internal Affairs agent investigating Downs who ultimately has to decide which side of the law he’s on.
It’s official, folks. The award for waaaay too many trailers and TV spots has to go to director Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man 2. I have to say, it’s been an adventure trying to keep up with the promotional campaign for this one, and I don’t even think I was able to share the latest official trailer for it. So, I’m more at ease knowing that this film is on its last legs of promotion after just debuting in Europe before its North American release on May 2.
Needless to say however, with an action packed X-Men mid-credits nod, in addition to Black Cat’s possible inclusion in Drew Goddard’s The Sinister Six, the production of Venom and all other Spidey related projects to remain on-going for another several years, we’re far from done with this corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As for me, well, I think I’ll just leave you this 10-minuted complete B-roll below.
Unless you’re an avid comic book fan or an insider, there’s no telling what plans Kevin Feige has in store over at Marvel now that plans are underway for a slate of superhero movies to come between now and 2028. With more films on the way going into Phase three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, in addition to other titles in the Spider-Man universe, one can only imagine what will come next. Personally, I’m still waiting on an R-rated Deadpool movie that Fox keeps promising. That just needs to happen, one way or another.
In the meantime, fans around the world have a new reason to gloss over the prominence of superhero summer blockbusters with director Marc Webb‘s latest contribution, The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Opening on May 2, 2014, the film stars Andrew Garfield back in uniform, along with Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan and Paul Giamatti, with an interesting, operatic soundtrack by Hans Zimmer and Pharrell Williams.
We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” Peter Parker finds that his greatest battle is about to begin.
It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: Oscorp.
